Palabos is a general software library for computational fluid dynamics using the lattice Boltzmann method. In biomedical research, the main domains of applications are cardiovascular, including the simulation of blood flow in arteries, the investigation of the effect of medical devices such as stents, and cell-level blood simulations to investigate fundamental blood properties. Principal target users are researchers in the biomedical domain and R&D developing new medical devices.
The code is open-source and is distributed under the terms of the software license AGPLv3. It can be downloaded from the Web site www.palabos.unige.ch and is straightforward to install, as it depends on no external library (except for an implementation of the MPI communication layer).
